My wife and I had dinner at La Cantina Cubana. The restaurant is very good located (close to Grand Place and Manneken Pis) and has a nice atmosphere. However, the food was average.

Small cosy restaurant with a limited menu (chicken or fish). Great service, great food as long as you are not picky. Not busy and not many tables at 19.00 hrs. Chicken Don Simon and Chicken de manicera extremely tasty.

Went with three friends. Shared the guacamole starter which was simple but nice. Then the main dish as chicken potato and rice with a nice peanut sauce. Bananas and ice cream as dessert. All very good and very friendly staff! Recommended!
